Disclaimer: I'm a former Christian who is now an atheist. I have nothing against most theists and respect their beliefs - up to the point where they step on mine. However, even in my Christian days I would've been appalled by the hubris of this plan.Continue
Ardent Atheists Emery Emery and Heather Henderson talk with comedians, actors and friends about atheism, deism and the effects of religion on us all. Guests of the show are a mix of atheists, agnostics, deists, scientists, humanists and the occasional god-loving, scripture-quoting crusader. Discussions are deeply impassioned, mostly respectful and always funny.

Hi Guys, thanks for the warm welcome. I tend to be a bit turned off by the implication that we "have it right" or are "the holders of the truth" or any of that stuff and so I am hesitant to join groups here just yet until I figure out the culture of said groups. I'm an atheist/agnostic, though I tend to hate to define myself in the theist terms of atheist. Indeed, I don't like to reference "God" or "gods", I feel like *for me* it is enough to just live a life mostly free of magical thinking…Continue
Sure, God probably gets all of the jokes here. How about everyone's second favorite imaginary place?
Prelude to a Major Survey

It is clear to many members of the atheist internet blogosphere that there is a noticeable gender disparity among participants in atheist activities (fora, blogs, comments, readership) online. Two quick examples will illustrate. As of 6 May 2011 only 27% of Atheist Nexus (A|N) membership is…
So, yesterday I attended a convention for women that celebrated women leaders and is also used to inspire other women. Sounds good, does't it? I am sure that most of the ladies who attended it, did enjoy it, but the only thing that I enjoyed was the food - the whole thing felt like I was back in church. Women declaring their faith in god and how good he was to them - and the whole time I wanted to say to them: it was YOU! You did what was achieved. The 'glory' is yours, because you worked…Continue
Timothy Keller informs us that we can get that true happiness by acknowling that we are sinners! God would then take away that guilt of sin and make us truly happy. We must never tempt Him by sinning, but we'll sin and get that absolution. When bad things happen, we can still have happiness as knowing that He loves and protects us.
As His own son, [amongst His others who had children by…Continue
A friend of mine has been blogging for a brief while and I thought some would enjoy his work. His ideas on philosophy are quite intriguing.
When it comes to morals it seems that Christians never get above the belt-buckle unless it is to peer behind a brassiere. Genes for sexual obsession passed down from the Catholic Church evidently have not mutated over the centuries as Christian leaders remain overly concerned with who's doing who, how they are doing it and if there are any naked people or pictures anywhere near.
To be sure there is a need for watchdog organizations and laws keeping dangerous sexual predators, perverts…Continue

I was inspired this week by a post from Xanthe Wyse on her God Confusion blog (you should definitely head over there and say "hi" - tell her I sent you, and don't forget to come back! Hello? Oh ... okay, fine, be like that). In "Good Christian Wife" Xanthe talked about a subject…Continue
This week's news in skepticism:
Good evening, and welcome to Freethinking News.
This is the night of Sunday, August 28th, 2011.
In our top story, the Arab spring has reached a new level of success for freedom and democracy in the Middle East when the regions most violent and oppressive dictator, Allah, was captured in a bloodless coup. The disposed deity was tried at The Hague for crimes against humanity.…Continue
Why should one beieve or disbelieve in the supernatural?
What counts as evidence for it? We naturalists-rationalists find none. Why, none can present it self, because that would go agianst our conservation of knowedge. Nature presents no divine intent as Lamberth's teleonomic argument notes and thus cannot affirm His very existence but can affirm that no divine intent presents itself…Continue
Answers In Genesis aren't really answers at all. I'd rather drink a gallon of boiled elephant diarrhea while having sex with a cactus than read another one of Ken Ham's logical disasters.
